    So where is BELIZE Latina, I know it is so easy to critic but come on SAN PEDRO, use your resources better noh!  I know you want women with experience but you also want a contender.  You know what I’ll take my own advice on this, since I don’t have anything nice to say, I won’t say anything at all.  But I haffi say this…… I’m happy to see NICH constantly helping out/ supporting but I strongly believe you guys can come up with a committee to breathe your own expectation of a BELIZE representative.

    So, we have a comment re the desire for a "latina" representative, followed by an comment suggesting the latina spelling of Belize should not have been used - use the English spelling of "Belize"! I am sure there may be more such "ethnic" preferences suggested, and it is good to be proud of your lineage! BUT, we are a country of ethnic diversity and should also be proud of this, proud to belong, proud of any Belizean who steps forward to represent our country - what have you done to promote "Belize" lately??

    I am a "gringo" with mainly Scottish blood, mingled with German, some French and Algonquin (native Canadian Indian). I am also a Belizean citizen, married to a Spanish Cooley gal and I have a "Spanish" step son and a "dark/Garifuna" step daughter - we are a united family!

    When I was young, I had one "racial lesson" from my father - he pulled out his fishing knife, laid it against his forearm, and said "It does not matter what color this thin patch of skin is, what matters is the color of your heart!" We are all the same color under this thin patch of skin, so let rally and support any Belizean who steps forward to represent us and Belize in a positive manner - we surely need more!

    enough lecture about ur race -  its  Costa Maya - MAYA with the closest of being Hispanic, if that makes any sense!  if she speaks good enough spanish to interact with all the other delegates then great especially being the HOST country... This type of pageantry should be with a purpose and more than beauty and bla bla bla which means she needs to be an ambassador.  I'm sure all of us love being a BELIZEAN and is proud of being in this melting pot but note that every pageant has or should have thier own purpose and standard.

    "MAYA with the closest of being Hispanic"

    What does this even mean?

    Maya is as distinct from Hispanic as it is from any other ethnicity.

    Idolly, you are the most beautiful one from the bunch.  Good luck tonight. :)

    Very true. The name of the country is Belize.

    We even have a Cabinet resolution to that effect.

    And no, "Belice" is not a translation.

    So, please, let's get it right!
